Thank You

Thank you to everyone that donated to clear landmines in 2013.

Last year the HALO Trust found and destroyed 6,849 landmines in Cambodia, along with 10,435 other explosive remnants of war. 283 minefields were cleared resulting in 2,770 acres of land returned to the rural poor for homes, farming, roads and schools.

Families can now build a future for themselves. And keep their loved-ones safe.

In 2014, we will continue our pace concentrating on land needed for agriculture and roads. About 50% of the area cleared next year will be targeting antitank mines, which have been a major cause of accidents in recent years.  

Thank you, our amazing supporters, for making it all possible.

We wish you a peaceful and prosperous 2014.
